Simone Mckenzie-Slaven Barely Survived Breast Implants

March is Breast Implant Illness Awareness Month.

Yes this is a real thing.

I know. Because this is what I had.

Yet no doctor would believe me.

No doctor would believe that my implants were making me sick.

Instead of looking for a cause as to why I was experiencing:

  • Arthritis

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Anxiety

  • Heart palpitations

  • Loss of vision

  • Depression

  • Internal tremors

  • Parasites

  • Weight loss

  • Dizziness

  • Numbness in fingers

  • Food sensitivities

They prescribed immune suppressing self administered injections weekly and told me to take anti depressants.

You see, medically on paper, I was a picture of health.

There was nothing that would come up on countless blood tests, MRI’s, ECG, stress tests, X-rays, ultrasounds.

This illness all happens internally.

I was “the healthiest looking sick person”.

And I was healthy.

  • I eliminated gluten, dairy, soy, corn, sugar from my diet.

  • I juiced

  • I made my own kombucha

  • I made my own bone broth

  • I read everything on health I could find

  • I took over 20 supplements a day

But I just couldn’t get better.

I had to quit my job, I could no longer drive. My kids had to stop after school activities as I couldn’t get them there.

I was a recluse in my own home.

Too hyper sensitive to noise and people.

My naturopath discovered an illness and he thought that my implants were the source of my troubles.

I had them scanned.

They were not leaking. So it can’t be them.

But it was.

I had them removed 18 months ago.

After I visited 3 surgeons, and 1 of them said if I left them in they would kill me.

The other 2 were more concerned with my appearance.

It hasn’t been an easy 18 month recovery.

I think the 8 years of medicated injections have taken their toll.

I struggle with permanent damage from the arthritis in my foot.

And still deal with some sort of pain daily.

My system is extremely sensitive still.

And if there is a new pain or symptom I fear the worst, and immediately think everything is coming back.

I am not a rare case.

This is happening to tens of thousands of women world wide.

This does not discriminate.

It does not matter whether you have silicone or saline.

Whether you have a rupture or not.

It is simply your body reacting to something foreign and trying to destroy it. Which in turn destroys you.
